HL Deb 15 May 1924 vol 57 cc442-3

My Lords, I beg to move the Motion which stands on the Paper in the name of the Lord President of the Council. The Motion has to do with a Bill which your Lordships had before you last night, and I think it was agreed that as the Bill must be passed the remaining stages should be taken now. I therefore beg to move the Resolution which stands on the Paper for the suspension of the two Standing Orders which will enable me to move that the Bill be passed through its remaining stages this afternoon.

Moved, That Standing Orders Nos. XXI. and XXXIX. be considered in order to their being suspended for this day's sitting for the purpose of giving precedence over other Orders of the Day to the Committee Stage of the Poor Law Emergency Provisions Continuance (Scotland) Bill and in order to take the Bill through its remaining stages.—(Lord Muir Mackenzie.)

On Question, Motion agreed to, and ordered accordingly.

Order, of the House, of yesterday committing the Bill to a Committee of the Whole House discharged: Committee negatived.

Then (Standing Order No. XXXIX having been suspended), Bill read 3a, and passed.
